Carla Jean Whitley dwelled primarily in the world of her mind--and she was OK with that. That is, until she turned 30. The bookish Carla Jean recognized that finding some physical movement was the best way to keep her body, and therefore her mind, intact for the long term.
She found the answer in yoga.
Carla Jean came to yoga because of those physical issues, but fell in love with it because of its mental and emotional effects. After falling head over feet for yoga, she quickly became a yogavangelist, telling everyone who would listen about the practice's powerful benefits. This slim collection of essays recounts her journey from yoga newbie to certified yoga instructor.
